Yes… It’s official, Bhante Sujato has completed new translations of the four Pali nikayas to English.
This is in addition to the new translations of the Pali Vinaya done by Bhante Brahmali.
With all these improvements SuttaCentral is going through a massive transformation and being rebuilt from the ground up.
Bhante Sujato, Ayya Vimala and Blake Walsh have being working on the site all along but with the coming of age of SuttaCentral, we needed specialized help to do the right thing by everyone involved.
After much consideration we decided to engage STXnext, a reputed software house in Europe to help us to bring this project to fruition in a timely manner.
We made this decision on the basis that the Buddha’s words are the greatest source of wisdom and benefit for all humanity, and deserve only the very best.
The new site can be used like an app offline, which is especially valuable for people reading on mobiles in places with expensive data and unreliable connections.
New and improved site will be much friendlier and easier to use, especially for people who are new to the suttas. It will be fully internationalized, so people can use the site in their own language.
We hope reach this milestone by March 2018 and the project cost will be one hundred and fifty thousand Australian Dollars.
Without your generosity we could not have made it this far in a relatively short span of time.
After more than two years of work we are coming to you with a begging bowl and a heartfelt request for dana towards the completion of this project.
Your dana will help spread the words of the Buddha without boundaries.
Please be rest assured that one hundred percent of your contributions will be used towards to development, enhancement and maintenance of the site. If you like to see our financials please email me anytime.
Please visit : https://suttacentral.net/donations to make your contribution.
Cheques made in favour of SuttaCental development trust can be mailed to PO Box 1931 Hornsby WF 1635.
May the merits of this dhamma dana help you to find peace in this lifetime.
‘one who lives by this Dhamma is protected by this Dhamma.’
Much metta and gratitude,
